Here is an update on what is going on in the vineyard. The grapevines are asleep and we are starting to prune. But because we haven’t had any rain and there is no rain in the long-term forecast, we are irrigating with sprinklers to try to germinate cover crop seed that was planted in December. We are lucky to have the ability to do this. Many vineyards in the Paso Robles area do not. This is what it looks like from a high point on the ranch.
And…I’m so happy to announce that since I posted a photo of me killing a chicken with a pocket knife and complaining about child molesters looking for photos of little girls with puppies, the top searches of my blog have improved dramatically!
New top searches: the creston nugget farm, gwyneth paltrow 10 hour chicken recipe, new born nubian goat, paella chef, why do silkies eggs have less cholesterol, and “kevin buffett”.
Now you are getting the idea! Congratulations Gwyneth for still making the top two. The ten hour chicken definitely does rock! Kevin is my friend who owns the feed store so apparently somebody is checkin him out. All positives: I can live with that.
One thing that I need to change, and I did have a comment about this, is that I need more posts on wine. Growing and making wine IS what I do for a living, after all. I am currently working on my 2010 blends so I am going to do a post about that process soon.
